Easy Garlic Butter Spread
We will quite often have a spaghetti dinner night. Most of the time, it is on Sundays. I can whip up a batch of Slow Cooker Homemade Spaghetti Sauce and a CopyCat Olive Garden Salad. I can have dinner ready with not much effort.
Spaghetti dinner is not complete without our garlic bread. Making garlic bread at home is so super simple and tastes so much better than store bought. I usually grab a fresh French Loaf from the bakery at Kroger. It is super inexpensive and is always fresh. I then spread my Super Easy Garlic Butter Spread on top and broil for just a few minutes.
Grab yourself a stick of butter, garlic powder, onion powder, and some parsley flakes. Yup…. that’s all that is needed for this recipe. Lather your butter on your favorite bread and broil.
1/2 cup softened Butter
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Dried Parsley
Mix together ingredients until well blended
Spread on top of sliced bread (I used French)
Broil on low until browned.
Do you have a favorite bread that you like to enjoy with your dinners. This garlic bread, and also our CopyCat Olive Garden Breadsticks, make for a great bread for dipping.

I’ve made this multiple times. It is amazing.
I never buy garlic bread anymore. I have shared this recipe on many occasions..
Thanks much for sharing it with others and dropping a rating, I appreciate it! We think it is a great spread for garlic bread My son uses the butter when making his filet mignon, it adds so much flavor.
Making this tonight to go with spaghetti. I’ll be using some of the hot dog buns we have left over from other meals. I haven’t decided if I’m going to use minced garlic or Ground garlic. I’m sure either way it will be good. I don’t have parsley so I may add Italian seasoning instead.
This garlic spread is everything!!! First and last recipe I’ll use for garlic spread. The store bought stuff has so many bad ingredients it’s crazy. This is simple and I can put on as much or as little as I want on my bread. The last garlic bread I’ve bought at the store they cheated me on the amount of spread they put on the bread. I didn’t make any changes to this recipe and my entire family loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!!
Hi, I don’t have onion powder, is there anything else I could use? Or maybe I could use onions?
I finely grated some onion and fried it off. Worked perfectly
I used this for garlic fingers.
I’ve made this garlic butter spread 3 times already!! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!
Great garlic spread recipe! Used fresh powder from a local garlic grower for max garlic flavour.
I always do garlic bread restaurant style – spread on both sides and grill both sides in a nonstick pan. Definitely makes it less healthy but it’s worth it. ;-)
HI , planning on making this today, just wondering do I use salted or unsalted butter.
Hi Carrie! I typically use salted butter. But, either should work. I hope you enjoy!
Thank you so much for this garlic butter recipe I am using it tonight to make garlic bread with my stuffed shells.
Hello thanks for sharing! How long is the expiration if I made today 10 bottles example.. Thank you
I just made my first garlic butter. Thank you for educating us how to do it. I tasted of it and it is wonderful. I am wondering why you chose garlic powder over garlic salt…
I personally find garlic salt to be too…well…salty. Garlic powder gives me all of the flavor with none of the sodium. Also, if you’re using salted butter for this recipe, you don’t need to use garlic salt. I’m no expert, but those are my thoughts!
Yes, I would also like to know how much fresh garlic versus garlic powder. Thank you!
How long does this butter keep for and do I refrigerate it.
Hi Ali!I keep a container in my fridge. It never lasts much longer than a week around here. I am sure it would stay good for quite some time if you refrigerate.
Just made this. Oh. My. Stars. This is THE garlic spread recipe I’ve dreamed of for years!! I think the secret is onion powder. Just so soooooo perfect! Thank you for sharing this!!!
Hi, I am interested in making this garlic bread spread cause it looks delicious!! :)
However, I would like to use fresh garlic… How much garlic cloves should I use instead of garlic powder?
Looking forward in hearing from you very soon :)
I’d recommend sautéing the garlic (I think 1-2 cloves finely minced would be good – but you know how much your family loves garlic) in a little bit of the butter first til softened to take out the raw garlic taste, then adding back to the rest of the mixture to blend it all and stick back in the fridge.
Thanks so much for sharing this. I am planning an authentic Italian dinner party and am making my own bread, and this will be wonderful to use on it.
Garlic bread is one of my faves and this garlic butter looks delicious! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday this week!
